Oveja Negra Brands has announced the sixth release of its annual limited edition cigar, the Black Label Bishops Blend 2021.
May 18, 2021 — Black Label Trading Company is pleased to announce the shipment of Bishops Blend to select retailers later this month. Bishops Blend is hand crafted in Estelí, Nicaragua at Fabrica Oveja Negra.
It’s the sixth consecutive year Black Label Trading Company has released the Corona and Robusto sizes of the Bishops Blend. The Lancero vitola was added in 2020.
“We are very excited about this highly anticipated release. Bishops Blend boasts big bold flavors of anise, pepper, raisins and a sweet earthiness on the finish. It is very complex and extremely refined. As with the past vintages, the broadleaf fillers shine at the forefront and are perfectly balanced by the Nicaraguan filler tobaccos,” commented James Brown, creator of Black Label Trading Co. and partner at Fabrica Oveja Negra.
Distribution in the U.S. for the Black Label Trading Company Bishops Blend will be handled by Oveja Negra Brands. Media Rueda will be handling distribution for Belgium and Luxembourg.
